The folding table story a la SRS - ho ho ho! I could see that happening! And me going down with it.

R brought a large book shelf for my mini pottery work space-to-be. (from Montreal house.) A corner of his library-to-be will do for a while. I will bring the bare essentials when returning from Beaver: portable wheel and its stools, tools and a plaster basin and bucket for trimmings. Oh yeah, and a folding table!! Only four steps down from outdoors to get in here and it is in a cabinet at front of house, near car. I am seeing on FB reports of nasty snow there today, and it will not be melting soon. So I am fore warned. Take boots.

Ransacked house and car looking for my protective mask (for dust/toxins) to no avail.I have two; how could I have misplaced TWO! But sorted, ditched and filed papers, dry mopped upstairs, caught some cobwebs, caught up dishes, watered plants as necessary. And fed the fire.

Windy all day and power was off part of time in the vicinity of Beaver. Nothing I can do about it so hoping nothing freezes is only option. There is a generator here - in the garage NOT connected! And no gas can to feed it. We do have adequate electric cords to use but it is still in the box... R is too busy with business (well-named!) to attend to our home. I had the fantasy that this house would inspire him... The electric was off here in the night but I doubt for long. The stove clock was flashing - 4:55.

Still not cooking much as the planned-overs have lasted too long. The order from the grocery did not arrive! And no response to my email. Fine!
